That's the way love goes

On friendship

Sad but true:

If to know the truth is to be sad I'd rather be blissfully ignorant. 

Ah, but I wouldn't really make that choice, even if I could. What I mean is that truth comes with a heavy price and you must be ready to pay the bill even if you don't like the taste of it.

I'm uncharacteristically enraged by Facebook posts like this one: "I just saw an injured cat/dog. Can someone do something?"

Well why don't YOU do something, you hypocritical idiot?

I mean,  I'm trying to be understanding and all but...seriously... to be so utterly stupid... I'm sorry, that's beyond me.

Set right

I love tackling problems. It's not that I impatiently wait for problems to occur - of course not, but if/when a problem happens it no longer throws me down a hole at the end of which I would wallow in pity deaf to the voice of reason. On the contrary - I'm even a bit excited with curiosity in the face of the challenge: "Hmm, let's see if I can do this." I think it's because I like correcting a mess, I like it when I can right a wrong and straighten something that is twisted. No, I am not a control freak (not anymore). It's actually pretty simple. Most messes origin from negligence and sheer laziness. So it's not like I possess some superpower in problem solving - I just don't mind to make an effort where others choose not to.

Lost battles?

I saw a giant UNICEF billboard that says "Every fifth kid has been a victim of abuse. Fight injustice."

Have you noticed how many like it there are in the recent years? Countless campaigns urging people to take a stand against poverty, domestic violence, animal abuse, etc etc etc, you name it. What the hell happened to mankind? Do people of today really need to be constantly reminded to be human?


On Valentine's day my Lavazza slip Hooray! 
"Can't buy me love" ? No, not love. Only just about everything else. Like security for example. The only currency that love recognizes is love in return. And even unreturned it still pays off.

“Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”

I think that the only reason I manage to survive mentally, and go through each day without falling apart, and be able to smile without faking it, and basically be able to face each new day is my utterly unreasonable and yet unshakable faith that one day it will all make sense, that one day the world will wake up to the antonym of the Apocalypse, the complete opposite of Doomsday, to the Age of Heaven on Earth. With over 7 billion people sharing one home it seems unthinkable that they will come together to destroy it rather than to save it and fix it. Strange that so strong a faith would grow inside a convinced atheist. And sad I will not live to see that day. But it will come.

In God I believe not...but it might be I believe in Man.


It is said "Enjoy the little things in life."

Can I have one grand thing instead of many little things? One big fire warms better than lots of single candles.

"What the fuck is wrong with you, people?"

I thought that the wall I had built around me was thick enough but there are leaks through which misery and suffering pour on my naked heart. Misfortune doesn't have to be attached to a familiar face to affect me. Anonymous suffering is still suffering and as long as it is out there my heart won't find peace. It kills me to know this world has all the resourses needed to be fair and happy but it fails simply because it doesn't want to bother. The wisdom to accept what I can not change is no comfort.


"Dallas Buyers Club" was on TV a few days ago. For a couple of hours it made me forget completely about everything that should be in life but isn't, and everything that shouldn't be in life but is nonetheless. That's movie magic for you.
